During our 2015 vacation to North Carolina, we spent the October 24 to 25 weekend in the Blue Ridge Mountains to see the fall colors. We almost canceled the outing as the weather forecast called for rain; in the end we decided to go. We did get a bit of fog and gray skies, but not a drop of rain, so it all worked out for the best. A subset of these photos may be found on our web site.
